The standard Allopathic healthcare model in the United States and other Industrial nations has been highly criticized as unable to meet the current healthcare needs in terms of effectiveness in positive health outcomes and cost. The rise in complex diseases and the cost of healthcare have been major catalysts for a call for change in the medical model. In an effort to improve health outcomes, the Integrative Medicine model was created and established under the Complementary and Alternative Medicine category. “Integrative medicine (IM) is a patient-centered, healing-oriented clinical paradigm that explicitly includes all appropriate therapeutic approaches whether they originate in conventional or complementary medicine (CM).” BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine 14, Article number 132 (2014)
